I love this recipe because it's easy and fast. I always use it for parties, and I always keep it in the fridge for a little snack. You can dip anything in it, although me and my friends prefer using fresh pita bread from a middle eastern market. Caution though, when I say spicy, I mean SPICY!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain both cans of garbanzo beans and put them in the food processor.
  2. Add in tahini, lemon, and garlic, and turn on the processor.
  3. As processor mixes these ingredients, add the other ingredients, and keep processor going until smooth. Keep in mind, that the more olive oil you use, the smoother it becomes.
  4. When finished, refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

Family loved this although I did change it up some. I used 6 large cloves of garlic and since I didn't have any habaneros or jalapeno I used 1/2 tsp of chili garlic paste. I also through in a couple roased red peppers. Worked great. Easy peazy and very inexpensive!

Made this for Fall PAC '08. Very nice hummus, couldn't find tahini, so ground some sesame seeds best I could. I don't know why anyone would buy store-bought hummus with this great recipe! Thank you for sharing!
